More NVIDIA CUDA Benchmarks With Blender Cycles Engine

Yesterday I published Blender Cycles Render Engine Benchmarks With NVIDIA CUDA On Linux numbers that included the GTX 1000 and GTX 900 series for the Blender 3D modeling software now that there's an automated test profile for Blender via for the Phoronix Test Suite. Here are more Blender CUDA benchmarks from a more diverse range of NVIDIA hardware.

For those interested in Blender Cycles performance on NVIDIA hardware with CUDA, these latest benchmarks have GeForce GTX 900/700/600 series data points. The GTX 1000 Pascal numbers were left out of this later testing since as yesterday's numbers show Blender or somewhere in the software stack are some performance issues... See yesterday's articles for that data.

These latest Blender CUDA numbers are from the GeForce GTX 680, GTX 760, GTX 770, GTX 780 Ti, GTX 950, GTX 960, GTX 970, GTX 980, GTX 980 Ti, and GTX TITAN X. All tests were from the same Ubuntu 16.04 LTS x86_64 system with NVIDIA 367.27 driver and CUDA 8 RC. System power consumption monitoring was also done during this Blender benchmarking.
